Ex-governor steps back up to the mike on WCBM


Former governor William Donald Schaefer is keeping a modest public profile on the radio airwaves, with two more turns next week as a talk show host on WCBM-AM (680). Mr. Schaefer will fill in for the vacationing Brian Wilson from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday. As in two previous appearances, he will be joined by longtime local radio figure Harry Shriver.


If you missed them in their sold-out performance last night at Merriweather Post Pavilion, Hootie & the Blowfish are featured on tomorrow's "98 Rock Sunday Night Concert," at 10 p.m., WIYY-FM (97.9). Also on the show: Counting Crows.


Remember Ronnie Dove, the 1960s pop singer who had such hits as "Right or Wrong," "Say You," "One Kiss For Old Times' Sake" and "Mountain of Love"?

Since late May, "The Ronnie Dove Show" has been harking back to those years at 6:05 p.m. Fridays on WITH-AM (1230). "He's bringing back what radio used to be," says station manager Gerry Liss, saying the one-hour show has generated much listener response.

Mr. Dove, who was declared "master of rock and roll" earlier this year in a resolution in the Maryland Senate, got his start in Baltimore at a club called Elmer's.

With co-host Gary Helton, the station's morning personality, Mr. Dove spins some of his records, interviews guests and takes calls.


In a musical move of another kind, country/honky tonk music host Eddie Stubbs, whose "Eddie Stubbs Show" is heard from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sundays on WAMU-FM (88.5), has taken the act on the road. The longtime fiddler with the Johnson Mountain Boys bluegrass band recently moved to Nashville to join the backup band for singer Kitty Wells, and he's taping his program in the country capital.


And in yet another musical genre, midday personality Ken Jackson and the Sentimental Journey Orchestra will entertain at a big-band bash celebrating Legends Radio Network's move to Towson this spring. The Network broadcasts on WWLG-AM (1360) in Baltimore and WASA-AM (1330) in Havre de Grace. The event is 8:30 p.m.-12:30 a.m. July 7 at the Sheraton Baltimore North Hotel in Towson. Call (410) 433-2427.
